This was a really fun thing to take the kids to. The landscaping and flowers are very beautiful and maintained well. There aren't a ton of animals but the zoo is free and the animals seemed well cared for.

The Wisconsin Rapids zoo is a small zoo but great for everyone. During the summer months the petting zoo is lots of fun for small children's adults alike.

This is a small, local zoo with some pretty gardens as well as a petty zoo for young children. A great place to have a picnic lunch and let the little ones stretch their legs while traveling through the area.

I felt for a really small zoo that they had a good selectin of animals for the kids to experience! Even a small barn with a petting zoo. My grand daughter loved it!

For it being a free zoo its a nice place, there are probably roughly about 20 different animals. The nicest thing about the zoo is they offer different activities for young children during the summer months. Their gardens are also beautiful to walk through.

This was a great place to visit with our grandkids. There is also a park near by for them to play and have a picnic lunch.
